: The standard thermostat was 160 degrees, I'm running a 180 degree thermostat. Your situation sounds normal to me, the temp will always rise after shutting the engine down because your water pump and fan are no longer in use. Why did you remove the thermostat?
The reason the thermostat was removed was the jeep only runs in the summer months. She has no heater, But I will be taking her on a 250 mile flat run soon. Will a long run make her hotter?
